OzHarvest is committed to bringing our food rescue model to regional communities.
Since our regional food rescue program REAP was established in 2011, it has seen more than 300 different locations register interest to be part of the food rescue network including places such as Murwillumbah, Orange, Coolangatta, Mareeba and Ballarat.
Successful and established REAP chapters such as Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Wagga Wagga, have been set up and run entirely by dedicated volunteers. REAP volunteers have seen instrumental in securing local funding in their communities to purchase vans and equipment enabling regional food rescue!
Local funding and local grants for these regional programs ensure that food rescue in these regional areas is possible. We are fortunate to have received a grant from Aussie Farmers Foundation specifically to help OzHarvest expand the REAP program.
